Scott DuBois (born April 27, 1978) is an American jazz guitarist and composer.

Career[edit]

DuBois studied at the Manhattan School of Music. He recorded two CDs featuring saxophonist David Liebman, Monsoon (2004) and Tempest (2006), for the Soul Note record label, and three CDs, Banshees (2008), Black Hawk Dance (2010) and Landscape Scripture (2012) for Sunnyside Records. DuBois's most recent CD, Landscape Scripture, was named one of the "Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2012" by National Public Radio.[1]

His current quartet consists of Gebhard Ullmann on tenor saxophone and bass clarinet, Thomas Morgan on bass, and Kresten Osgood on drums.

Nate Chinen described Scott DuBois in the New York Times as having "an equal commitment to knotty compositions and blank-canvas improvisation".[2]
